If you fail to specify a function by just typing in HBZT as follows:
you will be reminded of the valid functions by the resulting screen:
Inputting an invalid function:
will cause a similar screen to appear:
When executing the HBZT transaction, you should clear your screen before typing in the transaction and function.

You will find references in each article such as: INIT+Sysid. When you see this syntax, it indicates you should specify (for example) the string INIT concatenated with a symbolic value. The following symbolic values may be used:
- Sysid - the CICS region SYSID
- Serverid - the HostBridge for zIIP (HBz) Server identifier
